It's hard to believe that perhaps one of the best Led Zeppelin albums came out 45 years ago. While you may have rocked out to it thousands of time, there are certainly some facts about the cuts you may not have known. (h/t Rolling Stone)

  • The Song Remains the Same was originally an instrumental track called The Overture
  • George Harrison provided inspiration for The Rain Song after complaining about the band's repertoire
  • The foundation of the album was recorded at Mick Jagger's country home, Stargroves
  • The Crunge offers a loving parody of James Brown
